More Relief Aid for Bhaktapur

Yesterday, food and tents were delivered to 46 families in Khadka Gaun in the Bhaktapur district. after becoming aware of a very sad situation there.  Some help had been delivered to this village, but the higher caste families were not sharing the relief aid with the lower caste families.  The higher caste families were using the extra drinking water given to them to irrigate their farmland rather than giving it to the lower caste families in need.

It has been raining quite a bit since the earthquake, and this is not typical weather for this time of year in Nepal.  The woman in the picture above told our team members that her family has been living under a make shift tent made of broken rice bags to stay out of the rain. She was very thankful for our help.

More relief is planned for another nearby village tomorrow.

We have been able to help many families so far with food and tents and there are many more in need.

Thank you for your generous support for the earthquake affected people in Nepal.  If you would like to make a contribution please CLICK HERE.
